A nasty reporter named
Richard Dees (Miguel Ferrer) for a
tabloid magazine called Inside View never
seems to get what he wants but however,
he discovers some news about a series of
vampire murders by the name of Dwight
Renfield (Michael H. Moss) that he's
assigned to as this vampire apparently
travels by plane killing local residents
wherever he travels as Richard tries to
interview any witness he possibly can in
order to follow Dwight's trail.
Richard however is competing with a
fellow worker by the name of Katherine
Blair (Juliette Enwisle) which he is not
happy about and will do anything to
prevent her for taking over his
Yet, Richard is tormented by nightmares
on Dwight which turn out to be real for
him later on as he tries to keep his head
screwed on tight to find out who this
Dwight really is and what he wants.
A nice presence by Richard Dees walking into his work from the rain and
then screaming at one of his employees about not having his report on
the new edition as well as a nice sharp
reaction by her to top it all off looking
like a real pair who don't get along
A good shot on Richard sitiing in
a bar with a cigarette as well as Katherine Blair trying to come up to him
friendly to try and talk to him as
there's a nice close up shot on the two
of them but things look disturbing when he acts cold.
We spot another nice shot on Katherine in the office at work ripping up a plane
ticket and throwing it in the air.
A good close up shot on the dark plane
and the camera panning away towards a
supporting character Ellen Sarch sitting on some steps at
her mobile home looking amused. We see
another good shot on her standing looking
happy along with a good shot on a victim getting
slayed inside a window of a mobile home
as he does well by hollering.
We have many corny discussion between Richard and Merton Morrison at the
office scene of looking for reports on
this vampire killer.
Nice shot on supporting character Ezra Hannon when he is in deep though
about telling a story before the
Good flashback scene with a good distance
shot on Dwight Renfield walking
of of his plane along with Ezra staring at him.
A nice shot on supporting character Claire Bowie washing a plane and not
being all there.
Good shots on Richard walking
along a graveyard and spotting a
tombstone along with a nice aggressive
kick on the tombstone. A good surprising
shot on a caretaker approaching him speaking
coldly and crazy towards him.
A nice shot in a hotel room with a hand
clawing behind a window curtain along
with a glance by Richard and then
the shadowy figure of Dwight coming out from the curtain with heavy
breathing which looked creepy for the
Many good shots on some bloody corpses
during an accident on the road showing Richard taking pictures.
Good close up shots on Richard and Katherine making phone calls
to try and find out on who Dwight
A good shot on Dwight standing
behind Richard and speaking
coldly to him as well as grabbing him
with his clawlike hands.
A nice black and white scene that
involves Richard walking around some mist
in the airport station with
dream vampire's rising up towards him
which looked terrorising.
Bottom line: A fun type of low
grade Stephen King flick but yet
alot of the times it isn't scary as we
mainly see just a reporter questioning
people or getting aggressive with others. However, it's interesting to spot a
vampire flying an airplane instead of
turning into a bat and flying to their
next prey as Mr. King himself
wants to make his stories as different as
possible. At times it's enjoyable and at times it's
annoying and bland especially at the
tabloid magazine office and the going
on's there. I always found tabloid reporters total
scumbags which is probably the reason why
I wasn't thrilled during those moments.
The acting is
quite good as we have a winning
performance by lead actor Miguel
Ferrer (Richard Dees) as a nasty reporter as he
brings his firm attitude across nicely
showing perfect aggressions too. A kind
of person that you don't want to know. A good disturbing
nasty reaction by him when someone tries to get aquainted. Another part of the story does well by grabbing an onscreen bartender and demanding who bought him a
drink which looked very energetic.
Juliette Entwisle (Katherine 'Jimmy'
Blair) does well with her
tense actions espceially when she talks
as she brings it well to the screen. She does well alsmot crying and walking away when someone is mean to her.
Dan Monahan (Merton Morrison) is a little too much
with his part as a newspaper employer as
he brings too much comedy to his role and
is not the least bit funny. A nice reaction on him laughing almost insanely after talking to
someone on his phone in his office.
Michael H. Moss (Dwight Renfield) does a nice job with
his icy words as the vampire in the film
Dwight although we hardly see him in the
